Today in Paris

Uploaded: Jan 11, 2015

Today I watched the march in Paris. I encourage everyone to see clips on
TV or Internet sites.

Today thousands of Muslims marched in solidarity with Jews in Paris. Fifty years ago thousands of Jews marched in solidarity with African Americans in the south. Fifty years earlier men (some) marched in solidarity with women as the final push for the right to vote in America carried on.

More recently many straight Americans stood with our gay brothers and sisters in an ongoing move to remove discrimination based on sexual orientation.

I cried today in happiness to see such an outpouring of support.

Today reminds me that we are stronger when our voices are merged in support of freedom and tolerance and that we all can at one time or another use the support of others.
